Jordyn Wieber is an American gymnast. She is the 2011 World All Around Champion and she will compete for the USA at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
And as of now she is eliminated from the all around competition. Shockingly she did not qualify.
Wieber’s favorite musician is Justin Bieber and she hopes to meet him someday. “I’m not sure what it’s going to take to meet Justin Bieber,” she said. “We’ll just have to see if fate brings us together. An Olympic all-around title would definitely help.
According to the broadcast at the start of the opening ceremonies, Bieber did pass along his wishes and best of luck to Wieber, and also a gift basket to the entire gymnastics team.
Wieber was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated with the rest of the USA Women’s Olympic Gymnastics team on the July 18, 2012 issue of Olympic Preview. This marked the first time an entire Olympic gymnastics team had been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated
